Hodgkinson carried 'kill list' of House Freedom Caucus members

19 June 2017

In 2016, Hillary got 4,549 votes in Del Ray and Trump just 883.

Congressional shooter James Hodgkinson had in his pocket a list containing the names of three Republican congressmen when he was shot, according to reports published Friday.

His social media presence indicated he was strongly opposed to Republicans, including President Trump.

"We have an obligation to point out what his policies are doing for everyday American people", Turner said.

Pelosi and other Democrats charged that Trump himself bears responsibility for the virulent state of political discourse - and some said for Wednesday's attack as well, given his embrace of aggressive rhetoric on the campaign trail and the outbreaks of violence at some of his rallies.

Back home in Belleville, Illinois, Hodgkinson wrote letters to the editor and called his congressman.

Trump's lawyer denies he's being investigated
You could nearly hear the groan coming from anti-Trump liberals who were so looking forward to the coming impeachment trial. The president fired back over Twitter and at a news conference, claiming that some of the things Comey said weren't true.

After the election, Hodgkinson often posted angry rhetoric online directed at Donald Trump. He was a fiery guy, known for the occasional bar fight. If you're unhinged enough, there are places where you can express that you wish James Hodgkinson had been a better shot, and people will affirm your righteousness in saying so.

Investigators said they have not found any evidence indicating Hodgkinson planned the attack.

The charges were eventually dismissed, but witnesses told deputies Hodgkinson grabbed the girl by the hair and threw her on the floor.

Charles Orear, 50, a restaurant manager from St. Louis, told The Washington Post that he became friendly with Hodgkinson, who showed no signs of violence or malice toward others.

A complaint had also been made against Hodgkinson in March this year after he fired 50 rounds into a wooded area near homes.

Ten years earlier, a foster daughter committed suicide by dousing herself with gasoline and setting herself on fire inside her vehicle, the Belleville News-Democrat reported. The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from IL.

Resident Cynthia Vanzella said she was in bed when she heard people shouting . "They should be called out for their hatred". One man, who gave his name as Mohin, said his cousin was caught up in the incident. "And he just came into all of us".

"I am sickened by this despicable act", Bernie Sanders said.

As a Republican in superliberal Santa Clara County, Soule said she and her fellow party members were anxious for their safety. "He asked me if this team was the Republican or Democrat team practicing".

Stephen Brennwald, an attorney and YMCA regular, said he thought it was odd that Hodgkinson never exercised or wore workout clothes.

Trump praised Scalise as "a very good friend" and "a patriot", telling him that "you have not just the prayers of the entire city behind you, but the entire nation and frankly the entire world". "I can't wrap my head around it", Hodgkinson said. He always drank Budweiser from a can and drank alone, barely speaking to anyone, including the bartenders. And she suggested that maybe he wanted a break from living with their - her daughter's child who was living with them in their home.

Pelosi says it's "outrageous" and "beneath the dignity" of the House, adding: "How dare they say such a thing, how dare they".
